Description

    FIELD
  • This disclosure relates generally to drinking vessels, and more specifically, to an insulated drinking vessel with a multifunction lid.
  • BACKGROUND
  • Drinking vessels, such as cups, insulated beverage containers, canteens, and the like are used to contain fluids for drinking. Fluids tend to spill if left in an open container, so many drinking vessels include a lid. Some lids include openings for allowing controlled passage of the fluid to a user of the vessel. In some cases, the opening is a hole or slot for receiving a drinking straw. In other cases, the opening is a hole or slot for sipping directly through the lid. Various forms of such drinking vessels are known in the art. For example, paper disposable cups commonly include a plastic lid with an “X” shaped opening cut in the surface thereof for receiving a drinking straw. Many disposable coffee cups may be covered with a lid that includes a slot or spout for sipping directly through the lid. Such lids often include a secondary hole or opening for allowing passage of air through the lid, thereby equalizing the pressure inside the drinking vessel and the environment outside of the drinking vessel.
  • Some drinking vessels are insulated to reduce thermal transfer between the fluid contained in the drinking vessel and the external environment. For example, some disposable coffee cups are formed of an insulating material, such as a polymer foam. Other insulated drinking vessels may include an inner vessel and an outer shell, where at least a portion of the outer shell is spaced apart from a portion of the inner vessel. In some insulated drinking vessels, the space between the inner vessel and the outer shell is filled with air. In other cases the space may be filled with an insulating material, such as a fibrous material, a polymer foam material, or the like. In other cases, the space between the inner vessel and the outer shell is vacuum sealed. Known drinking vessels are commonly made from paper, polymers, foam, plastic, metal, and the like.
  • People often use covered drinking vessels when they are on the move. For example, it may be desirable to cover a drinking vessel when transporting the fluid on foot or in a vehicle. Additionally, it may be desirable to use a covered drinking vessel in the outdoors to prevent contamination of the fluids by dirt, insects, or the like. Because covered drinking vessels may be used in a variety of circumstances, and with a variety of different fluids, it may be useful to have a variety of access options. Unfortunately, drinking vessels are typically only provided with a lid configured for a single mode of access, such as with a straw, or with a drinking spout.
  • SUMMARY
  • Embodiments of systems and apparatuses including an insulated drinking vessel with a multifunction lid are described. In an embodiment, an apparatus includes a lid configured to engage an opening of a container, the lid configured to retain the liquid within the container. The apparatus may further include a first opening in the lid for dispensing liquid across a rim of the lid. Additionally, the apparatus may include a second opening in the lid for receiving a drinking straw. The apparatus may also include a first cover for covering the first opening in a first position and for allowing access to the first opening in a second position. Also, the apparatus may include a second cover for covering the second opening in a first position and for allowing access to the second opening in a second position.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • Various features and advantageous details are explained more fully with reference to the nonlimiting embodiments that are illustrated in the accompanying drawings and detailed in the following description. Descriptions of well-known starting materials, processing techniques, components, and equipment are omitted so as not to unnecessarily obscure the invention in detail. It should be understood, however, that the detailed description and the specific examples, while indicating embodiments of the invention, are given by way of illustration only, and not by way of limitation. Various substitutions, modifications, additions, and/or rearrangements within the spirit and/or scope of the underlying inventive concept will become apparent to those skilled in the art from this disclosure.
  • The present embodiments describe an insulated drinking vessel with a multifunction lid. For example, in an embodiment, the insulated drinking vessel may be a tumbler style cup. The tumbler may be formed of stainless steel sheet metal. The drinking vessel may include an inner vessel and an outer shell where at least a portion of the inner vessel is spaced apart from the outer shell, and wherein a space between the inner vessel and the outer shell is vacuum sealed.
  • In an embodiment, the drinking vessel can be configured to receive a multifunction lid. The multifunction lid may, in one embodiment, include an opening for receiving a drinking straw. In an embodiment, the multifunction lid may additionally include an opening for drinking or sipping directly through the lid. In an embodiment, the lid may include an operable cover for covering at least one of the openings in a first position and for allowing access to the fluid through the opening in a second position. In a further embodiment, the lid may include a plurality of operable covers. A first operable cover may be configured for covering the drinking straw opening in a first position and allowing insertion of a straw in a second position. The lid may also include an operable cover for covering the sipping spout in a first position and allowing drinking directly through the spout in a second position.
  • In a further embodiment, the multifunction lid may include a raised edge for engaging the lip of a user when the user drinks from the vessel. Beneficially, the smooth surface of the raised edge may provide a superior tactile experience to the user when drinking as compared to the relatively rough surface of the metal drinking vessel. In a further embodiment, the raised edge may be formed with a contour, such as a concave contour, for more fully engaging a lower lip, thereby reducing the tendency for spillage while drinking.
  • In various embodiments, the multifunction lid may include additional features, such as a vent port for allowing pressure equalization and steady flow of the fluid from the vessel. The lid may also include a flange or handle for removing the lid from the vessel.
  • FIG. 1 is a top perspective view diagram of one embodiment of an insulated drinking vessel 102 with a multifunction lid 104. In an embodiment, the multifunction lid 104 may engage an interior surface of the vessel 102 when seated. In another embodiment, the multifunction lid 104 may engage an exterior surface of the vessel 102 when seated. Beneficially, the multifunction lid 104 may contain (or keep) a fluid within the vessel 102.
